About Us

EU Information Centre (EUIC) provides information about the EU to all those interested.                                                                                                           

We assist the Riigikogu and civil servants responsible for EU issues in finding relevant information and EU legal acts. We teach school and university students to use EU databases and information sources, and help them find material for study and research. We help entrepreneurs find information needed for their business.

We collect and make available information from credible and reliable sources. The information we provide about the EU is neutral, accurate and true to the facts. Please send your question by email to elik@nlib.ee or use the query form on our website at https://elik.nlib.ee/en/ask-a-question/ We reply within one working day.

Our website offers EU news and introduces newly acquired publications and journals. We compile focus newletters on topical EU issues, which offer relevant reviews of books, research articles and internet sources.

As a European Document Centre, we have been a member of the European Commission Network since 2009 and take part in training courses organised for the staff of network members. We disseminate free print publications issued by EU institutions and bodies.

We organise EU-related events and prepare exhibitions which introduce our collections.
You are welcome to visit the EUIC Reading Room on the 5th floor of the National Library of Estonia (Tõnismägi 2, Tallinn, Estonia).
